Thu 2 Feb @ Yallah Bye!, VK, Molenbeek Bxl

This Thursday evening, concert + dj support by Rebel Up! @ VK.

Tunisian singer-songwriter Jawhar, known for his critically acclaimed album Qibla Wa Qobla, surprises us with yet an entirely new project: hypnotic, psychedelic and avant-garde electro-chaâbi music with a twist. Yallah Bye! is a rather unlikely musical encounter between an international icon of Rom culture, Mónika « Mitsou » Miczura (Ando Drom, Bratsch, Fanfare Ciocarlia) and the oriental folk/pop musician Jawhar. Based largely on new songs that Jawhar created for Yallah Bye! as well as pieces of Mitsou’s repertoire, this new creation is so much more than a clash of cultures.
Line Up:
Jawhar Basti: banjo vocals // Mitsou: vocals // Louis Evrard: Programming // David Picard: Keys // Yannick Dupont: Bass // Sep François: Percussions

Fri 19 Apr; Rebel Up! dj’s @ Balkan Trafik festival, Brussels

hey all,

Fun last minute flash;
On Friday evening we are unexpectedly playing at the Balkan Trafik festival in Bozar. We’ll be dj-ing our special old 1920’s-1950’s Rembetiko vinyls in the open Vino Zirkus area -where all the fine balkan wines can be tasted- in different time slots of 30 mins each (from 19.00-19.30/ 0:00-0:30/2:00-2:30). But also we’ll spin some rembetika during one or two moments during the performances of Greek dance group Fanouris Trikilis Band, to see some true rembetika dancing. Besides Rembetiko, for sure expect some Zeibekiko, Smirneika, Mortika, Demotika sounds in our set too…


Enough good stuff to see on Friday, check the programme; Rembetiko café, Guta Family, Fanfare Ciocarlia, Aka Balkan Moon, Klezmic Zirkus, Martin Lubenov, Thoma Loli & Aleks Micka and much more….
